I’m surprised (but heartened) to hear about an education class in grad school with such a high proportion of men. I just finished my M. Ed. and got very used to being the ONLY male student in my classes. Add in the fact that I’m 50 — I was unique in two ways, often being the oldest as well! Thankfully, I learned many years ago that girls don’t bite, so had no trouble surviving the ordeal. Let’s hope there is an influx of men in grad (and elementary) school classrooms. The need is certainly there.
